Drug development course

Drug development projects are often initiated by identifying a lack of treatment for a disease. The project usually has a deep knowledge of the disease and the biological mechanism. However, developing a medicine for the disease requires a broad knowledge of many different areas. This three-day course provides an insight into all the elements that should be addressed to effectively bring a pharmaceutical project to the finish line.

The course is organized by SwedenBIO and Läkemedelsakademin, part of Apotekarsocieteten.

Target audience: The course is aimed at those who work in drug development (e.g. in small and medium-sized enterprises), and feel that they want a comprehensive view of the complex development chain. During the course you will gain insight into how to work in the different stages of development, what to consider and what pitfalls there are along the way. To get the most out of the course, it is an advantage to have a university degree in science.

After the lectures on day 1, course participants are offered the possibility of a networking activity (mingle) in the vicinity of the course venue.

Course coordinators: Jeanette Jansson, Läkemedelsakademin, and Björn Ursing, SwedenBIO.

Participants: All speakers have experience in the drug development chain, and most have worked with or in small companies. The course may be given in English if necessary.

Participation fee: The participation fee for the meeting is 6000 SEK excluding VAT. If you work at a company that is a member of SwedenBIO, you get a 1000 SEK discount, enter discount code: 12884 in the registration.
